Just look at the interest this topic has generated. A lot of views, but only a couple of people posting. You can bet that of the people that do show interest at least 30% won't end up going. Either because of prior commitments, funds, or just a change of mind.
If the people from Az, for instance, had gotten together a few times already, they would be able to draw one another to attend just by going. As it stands now we have a few isolated individuals, and that's it. If I had been out with the guys from GA a few times and had a good time, I'd be more likely to travel farther. Dropping $300-$400 in gas is a bit of an investment, and that doesn't even count accomodations, food, emergency stash in the event something breaks, and other items that a person would need.
You really are putting a lot of effort into this, and that's great! Why not start smaller and build to that? If you have one big event with a handful of attendees you still don't get to meet any more people than you would with a more local event with the same number. I'm not talking about having something for the guys in AZ that no one else could attend, but have one there and let them have fun, and if anyone else shows up great!
Even with the main event in mind we need to somehow coordinate some smaller get togethers. Even just day trips would be good. It will not only get people acquainted, it would get some group shots in the gallery, some posts about the fun times, and would get the interest you're looking for in the big one you want to do.
PS- If you don't want people's input don't ask for it. There's no need to be snide about it. I'm well aware that my attendance isn't going to make or break anything.

The most important thing is we need to find a place to go!!!!!!!

We could partner with them since that is one of the largest bronco events out there. I am possibly going to be flying there myself from San Diego to represent Jeff's Bronco Graveyard (I administrate JBG's website) so I might be able to round up some BZ only door prizes or something like that.

I know there's plenty of events going on there trhoughout the year, as well as some of the other offroad parks in TX. I don't know about other states, but it seems like these are the only places to go to, with private land inaccessable and liabilty issues.
If someone needs a schedule of events at any location in Texas, I can post the links for you. I personally would be more willing to travel long distance to LA or ARK to something like this or the ECBR deal than a site-specific GTG, just my two cents.

I love the idea of a Bronco Zone Jamboree! It would be great to be able to put faces with the names.
I beleave it would be difficult for some people to travel to the event so making it an annual thing in differant parts of the country would be helpfull.
